Figure 4.14. Radiograph of the skull of the same infant showing osteomyelitis of the parietal bone.

Figure 4.13. The same infant as in Figure 4.12 with pus being drained from the infected cephalhematoma (pyocephal-hematoma). The pus grew pure E. coli in culture. In general it is recommended that cephal-hematomas not be aspirated, but on rare occasions, if the infant develops sepsis due to any organism, infection may occur in the cephalhematoma requiring drainage.
